JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md. (AP) — The Latest on services for Sen. John McCain (all times local):  Sen. John McCain's casket has arrived in Maryland ahead of ceremonies Friday at the U.S. Capitol. McCain was flown to Joint Base Andrews outside Washington after a church service Thursday in Phoenix. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was at the base to greet McCain's widow, Cindy, and their children. The six-term Republican senator from Arizona will lie in state under the U.S. Capitol Rotunda on Friday for a ceremony and public visitation. On Saturday, McCain's procession pauses by the Vietnam Memorial and heads for Washington National Cathedral for a formal funeral service. McCain died last Saturday of brain cancer at age 81.
